Crime at San Quentin

Doing their public service, Crime played for the cons at the California State Prison, San Quentin. Though the copyright is from 1984, I don't know what year this performance actually took place. It's from Target Video, the good people who brought you such performances as The Cramps at Napa State Mental Hospital.

I appreciate how the prisoners proudly hold up fliers with the band's "crime" logo, giving new meaning to the term audience participation. It is a mystery how the woman appears toward the end, dancing languidly to the beat with seemingly no barrier between herself and the men. I wonder how they pulled that off?

The song, incidentally, is Crime's "Piss on Your Dog." Dig their white socks.
